APRIL 8TH, OH WHAT A DAY!

The 2017 Natchez Euro Best is in the book, and what a chapter it made! The perfect "10" weather, beautiful field of autos and motorcycles, coupled with a lot of very nice folks made for an outstanding event. Thanks to all who participated, worked as volunteers, and worked as a group to get the ball rolling back in 2016!

We are already making plans for next year's event which will be on April 7, 2018. Shortly we will have an exciting announcement dealing with a special group's involvement in the event which will continue to raise the bar.

With an attitude of trying to make each Euro Fest better than the last, I ask for your help with comments, especially with issues that you may have encountered that you would like to see corrected. Sometimes there is a reason, but often not and the situation can be corrected with your help.

The second Euro Fest in the Mississippi BiCentenial Series will be held Sunday, May 28, 2017 in Oxford, MS.

Our headquarter hotel will be the Graduate, and the show hours will be 10:00am-4:00pm. More information is avaliable on the web site. Please plan to join us for a great and relaxing wekend in one of our State's most charming cities.

HIGH OF 75 AND 5 MPH BREEZE

It's going to be a beautiful day again this year, and I hope you will enjoy the show as much as you did last year.

 

2016 winners

 

We have pulled Austin Healey and MG out of the British Class and created a seperate class for each marque.

We will have a total of 16 Best in Class, 14 Outstanding in Class and 6 Sponsor's Awards and of course, Best of Show both Vintage and Nouveau.

THREE THINGS TO DO

  1. Review all of the Updates on the web site to make sure you don't miss anything.
  2. If you are participating in one of the drives, please be on time getting to your meeting point.
  3. Tell all your friends and neighbors about the show, and encourage them to come have a relaxing weekend in Natchez


FINAL ANNOUNCEMENT

I regret to inform you that the Bulldog Formation Flight Team show has been cancelled. The Federal Aviation Administration required a "Waiver" which could not be created in time for this year's show. The Flight Team is just as sick and sorry as I am, but we still will have great event of the grounds at Rosalie mansion. Drive safe, and I'll see you Friday or Saturday.
